The world’s slowest liveblogger continues to try to get in the good graces of the Big Blue faithful after telling us North Carolina was a better all-time program. He named John Wall his Player of the Year, gave us a sparkling #2 ranking in his preseason list, and has some splendid remarks about us in his SEC preview. Here they are, but you still don’t have to like him:
John Calipari was able to revamp the roster and re-energize the fans shortly after leaving Memphis for Kentucky, and now it’s time to watch him debut with an SEC title. Sure, there will be an adjustment period considering he’s implementing a new system and likely to start three freshmen next to Patrick Patterson and (presumably) Darius Miller. But the level of talent in the program is unmatched by anybody except maybe Kansas and Texas, and that’s why the Wildcats are an obvious choice to make the Final Four. The most talented of the talented bunch of players is John Wall, the freshman projected as the No. 1 pick of the 2010 NBA Draft. He’s like former Memphis point guard Derrick Rose in that he’s fast and explosive, but Wall is a more vocal leader with a more aggressive style. If you like him, he’s just as good as you think. If you’re skeptical, you won’t be for long, I promise.
